FAACT's Food Allergy Curricula Program for Schools
FAACT launched its Food Allergy School Curricula Program for K-3, Grades 4-8, and Grades 9-12 in May 2015, another program that fulfills our mission to educate, advocate, and raise awareness for all individuals and families affected by food allergies and life-threatening anaphylaxis.
The teacher-designed PowerPoint presentations, lesson plans, and activities in this free curriculum can be used to introduce your students to common food allergens and safety protocols while encouraging empathy for classmates with a food allergy.
